Activity monitor will not let me look at things on only one server

I have 4 SQL servers in my company. I can launch Activity Monitor locally from my desktop and connect to 3 of the 4. When I remote on to the problem server, I am unable to launch Activity Monitor that way, either. Now, I have checked all permissions (local and SQL). Nothing changed, but this started happening just yesterday. Any help would be appreciated.

You need the necessary permissions to connect to the Windows Server which are required for WMI.

Permissions were there yesterday. Still are.
Sorry to baldly contradict you, but obviously something has changed. Check the WMI on the problem box: check out Microsoft links here and here for info on how to do it. Also google this phrase: "check health of WMI" for more suggestions.
